Muppets Christmas

MONDAY 12/15)
  • Heroes (NBC, 9:00):  “Mohinder may hold the key to rescuing Hiro.” I’m starting to wonder if Mohinder has the answer to anything.
  • 20/20 (ABC, 9:00):  “Teens put on a show in a chronicle of a Virginia high school production of ‘The Wiz’ that uses video diaries and interviews to follow the emotional drama of students.” Sadly, this is the same network that also put together the barely-watched .
  • Worst Week (CBS, 9:30):  “Sam helps Dick choose the perfect gift for Angela after discovering he gets her the same thing every year.” Just for the record: Some things like spa packages and jewelry can be given over and over again.
  • The Hills (MTV, 10:00):  “Heidi and Spencer consider eloping during a Mexican vacation.” Whatever you do - avert your eyes.

Friday Ratings: Numb3rs Lean CBS’ Way

Even a little holiday cheer couldn’t stop CBS from taking another Friday night. Despite festive programming from its competitors, the Eye network was once again a winner in both categories.

Friday Ratings: Lipstick Jungle Not Seeing Improvement

If there ever was a time for fans to support Lipstick Jungle, it’s now. Unfortunately, the show facing cancellation just took another another step backward, not forward. Last night, the show placed third in its hour and dropped 21% from last week. But then again, if Knight Rider can get a full season pickup - who knows?

Friday Ratings: CBS Owns the Evening

At this point, I’m not sure if there is anything CBS could do wrong on Friday nights. Even when things were down (a.k.a. The Ex List days), the network was still on top. Now a repeat is surpassing the Eye’s originals.

Friday Ratings: CBS Better Off without Ex List

Although most shows saw lower numbers on Halloween night, CBS didn’t spook viewers away. In fact, the network - which dumped The Ex List last week - did even better thanks to a repeat of NCIS. Meanwhile, Lipstick Jungle‘s performance on NBC Friday looked downright scary. The program was down 35% from its last Wednesday outing.

Friday Ratings: Ghost Whisperer, Numb3rs Hit Season Highs

Despite being sandwiched in between Friday night’s best shows, CBS’ The Ex List continues to slide in the ratings. Nevertheless, the network still manages to dominate the week-end numbers.

Friday Ratings: So-So Debut for Crusoe

You gotta give NBC a hand for at least trying something different. Although it did better than last week’s episode of America’s Toughest Jobs, the network’s two-hour debut of Crusoe was third in its hour with the demos. Friday night, once again, totally belonged to CBS.

Friday Ratings: ABC Picks Up Traction

Despite low premiere numbers last Friday, ABC’s lineup picked up a little steam this week. This improvement, however, was not enough to take down CBS’ strong staples.

Friday Ratings: Ex List is No Moonlight

Last Friday, number crunchers had their eyes on two events: the debut of The Ex List and the departure of Friday Night Smackdown. Unfortunately for CBS and CW, the news wasn’t good. Despite CBS’ win in both the demos and viewers, Moonlight started and ended better than Ex‘s premiere. Meanwhile, CW’s comedic lineup only did 1/2 as well as the network’s old wrestling staple.
